Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

The men in question belonged to the Erillinen Pataljoona 4 (Detached Battalion 4). They were in essence Long-range recon patrol men. Like the posts in the link say "they were not proper parachute units, but trained to jump if necessary". Since there were only couple of combat jumps in 1944 with a to...

Done. Here is the entire conversation, in case you are interested:
:lol:

It is quite funny and once again adds some flavour (a certain PzC2 has so much to learn from you).

09SummaHardestDay [...] 4) Player Turn 2 - The commander and his subordinate have their good news / bad news conversation: "Uloste! (Excrement!)". Oh no, no, not like that. That's a pc word or medical term and extremely odd here. Better use "Voi perkele!" (Oh damn). To see this common word in use, ...

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

Thanks, Gabe. :) I really love Bru's rich and versatile use of English language with the occasional humorous interludes. Very educational, too, for us non-native English speakers. I'm more the technical guy myself. For example, the popup about the "Landsverk II" was very informative to me, in terms ...

Re: Continuation War 1941 Beta Test

I'll remember to remove the "coastal" when I get to editing Bengtskar. I assume "jaeger" is alright without the "coastal," correct? Well, they were not jaegers either to be precise, but why not let them stay as coastal jaegers? Imo there is no need to be too strict with details and coastal jaegers ...

Re: Continuation War 1941 Beta Test

Shhh. Well, the cat's out of the bag, now! (The truth is, I did think these guys were Finns.) Now that this flub has been revealed, it will be swapped out. Got any interesting alternative photos for triumphant coastal jaegers? (Yes, I prefer that spelling - I saw it spelled more frequently as "jaeg...

Re: Continuation War 1941 Beta Test

Hanko (several places) should probably be spelled Hankö (at least that is what we mountain-apes call it). 'jaegars' could probably be 'Jägers', similar to the German spelling. Nope, the correct spelling is indeed Hanko. Is it really Hankö in Norwegian? :shock: I ask because Hangö is the Swedish spe...

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

Yes, I was dimly aware of the cross on tanks but German planes, too? My perceptions of reality have been distorted by OOB. Yep, those too, though there is often a swastika in the vertical stabilizer. Regarding images there are indeed so many floating around, but the trick is to find the right ones....

Re: Continuation War 1941 Beta Test

That second fellow from the right in the foreground, carrying his rifle so casually, makes me smile. Not that these soldiers were marching in formation, but this guy looks unusually relaxed and carefree. I hope he made it through the wars in good shape. Hope he did indeed. :) An excellent choice fo...

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

Portrait-oriented photos are generally not good because they have to be shrunk down to 415 vertically which usually makes them look too small and require black bands to be inserted in the sides. I make exceptions here and there where the results don't look too bad. Yes, those certainly give you som...

Re: Continuation War 1941 Beta Test

I'm blushing because of all that praise for such a small contribution :oops: but thanks, Bru. :) I hope someday Slitherine/Artistocrats do the same for OoB that was done to Strategic Command -> publish an official Community Pack. Headed by the high quality products of BrucErik CSD Studio of course. :D

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

Heh, I guess anyone would stutter if you lose too many of those precious vehicles. Perhaps the Lagus Detachment was never anywhere near Karhumäki. Let the grognards dig up that information (I did try searching for it but failed) and complain. :) Actually it was and had an important role in the opera...

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

There is your Ankkuripaikka: Oh no, don't do it like that. Ankkuripaikka is just a general noun, not a name for certain location. You should either change the text to sthg like 'in a secluded cove we have prepared a surprise for the Finns etc." or if you like I could make up a village name. Hmm.., ...

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

It's hard to see on this screenshot, but Rukajärvi (town) is in the red oval and that is the primary objective. I created a "village" further up the lake for this vignette, in the yellow oval. What I am looking for is a plausible name for that village. Or, do you think I should downsize it, take aw...

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

Cool, I need a small village name, the location on the lake for the SBS mission. I see the name "Tsakarioja" nearby on the map that you posted. Would it be okay to use that or does it mean "web-footed duck" or something? Do you have an alternative suggestion? "Tsakarioja" is a stream on the western...

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

I for one really appreciate the fact that BrucErik Studio's products do not need any mods, but work with the vanilla game - and I don't think I'm alone in that. :) The canoes et al are okay and my idea with the photo was to sort of add sthg to show what it actually looked like.

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

OOB is expandable to some degree so a scenario could be made to cover all of the action depicted here, but the map would be tremendous and many units would be required. As it is, we are giving just a sample of the nature of the fighting that took place in this region. Much of OOB content is like th...

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

Cool, I feel the need to name the portion of the lake on the right that will show on the map. The Russian (anglicized) name is "Ozero Vanchozero" (I think "ozero" is "lake" so Google is repeating itself :) ). Do you have an actual Finnish equivalent? If not, do you care to make one up? I know that ...
